What Are You Looking At?

"If you don't know where you are going, any road will get you there."  -  Lewis Carroll 

Mother's Day morning my husband, John, took me on a drive through rural Ohio.

Our windows were down and the warm breeze felt wonderful after the long winter.  Occasionally the smell wasn't too pleasant, but that is just one of the hazards of driving on a two lane road winding between cows and horses.  :)

Another times there isn't a safe way to get out of the car to take pictures where you would like. 

I improvised.

I took off my shoes, stood on the passenger's seat and stuck my head out the sunroof.  I got a great view.  And my driver was very cooperative whenever I asked him to move the car a few feet forward or back.  I felt like I was on a safari, sticking my head out whenever there was a photo opportunity and place to stop.  Evidently the cows had never seen such a sight and were staring at me as I was taking pictures.  Bonus!

It was fun.

We weren't gone long, our teenage daughter was still sleeping when we got back.

Once home, it was back to the usual routine with things to clean and food to prepare.  I could have started my chores when I got up (which did cross my mind), then I would have missed the cows and barns, and some quality time with John.  I know I am blessed to have certain responsibilities, but I think making time for adventures is important matter how small.

Have you taken time for a little adventure lately?  I would love to hear about it.  :)

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a great day!

A Very Windy Day

"Anything you can't control is teaching you how to let go."  -  Jackson Kiddard

It was a very, very windy day last week when a friend and I went to Cox Arboretum to find some spring blossoms.

I Judge A Book By It's Cover

I hate to admit it...but I do.

"The difference between school and life?  In school, you're taught a lesson and then given a test.  In life, you're given a test that teaches you a lesson."  -  Tom Bodett

"I like the contrast." Megan, my teenage daughter, commented after I showed her two photographs I took of ranunculus flowers.

"We're fools whether we dance or not, so we might as well dance."

Mother Nature played a late April Fool's joke on us.
